Hi – My name is Bart Castle, I’ve been creating art and music for as long as I can remember. I’m currently living in Asheville, NC where I create my illustrations and play a variety of musical instruments in my mountain-side studio yurt.

I feel that art and music have an ability to express thoughts and feelings where words often fall short. There is a magic in everything around us, music and image permeates our world – I hope you may find some interesting new songs and sights herein.
